Cherry Blast is a game by Iron Dog Studios which represents a perfect fusion between traditional fruities and modern video slots. Namely, the used symbols and the imagery are classic, i.e. it includes fruits and other classic symbols used in traditional slot design, but the whole retro theme was given a modern touch, both in the sense of graphics, but also gameplay and playability.
The result is a somewhat eccentric and extremely enjoyable online slot, favoured both by fans of classic slot games, as well as by players who prefer games with a modern feel.
With 5 reels and 3 paylines, the outline of this game is rather standard. There are no visual reel borders and the game features 20 ways to win. The game has 8 standard symbols, plus wild and scatter symbols. A combination of at least three symbols across a payline is required.
You need to wager at least one coin per payline, and you cannot wager more than 2. You are free to determine the coin value which can vary from 1p per payline, up to a maximum of £2. The overall minimum wager is 20p, whereas the maximum stake amount is £40.
Kiwi, cherry, watermelon, plum and strawberry are the basic, low-value symbols. However, you can get 250 coins for a combination of 5 strawberries. Five kiwis pay only 30 coins. The bell, the 7 and the two golden cherries are the symbols of high value and with a combination of 5 golden cherries, you will win the game jackpot of 1,000 coins.
The wild substitutes all symbols except for the special ones, and a combination of 3 scatter symbols pays 80 coins. There’s a star free spins symbol which will award you 100 coins and 9 free spins.
This game offers few very intriguing bonus features. First, there is the bomb which can randomly explode on the reels and the outcome can be quite good, as it can include up to five wild symbols, 3 scatter symbols, or 3 free spins which will activate the free spins game.
Perhaps the best outcome of the bomb feature is the Dash Bonus. If the explosion results in the appearance of three bonus symbols, a special bonus level will be triggered. This will take you to a separate Pac Man themed side game, where you get to choose one of the 5 routes. Harder routes result in higher prizes, but it is a lot more difficult to win, compared to the easier ones. At the end of the bonus level you get to keep all the prizes that you’ve won during it.
With a very dynamic and explosive (pun intended) gameplay, and an average RTP of 96%, this game has a lot to offer. So if you’re looking for a round of casual, quirky fun, this Iron Dog slot is the right choice for you.
